Lately, social media has been flooded with trampoline exercises. From experts to celebrities, everyone is going gaga about revving up their cardio session, and there is no denying that trampolines fit the bill. Having said that, you need to be utterly cautious while you are on a trampoline, because if savdhaani hati, durghatna ghati.
The benefits of using a trampoline are tremendous, so much so that it has made a place in gyms as well in people’s homes. In fact, fitness expert Aman Puri, who is also the founder of Steadfast Nutrition shares more, “There is no denying that jumping on a trampoline is an exciting way to boost physical fitness. A trampoline is a device for recreational and fitness activities and is composed of a thick mesh fabric stretched over a frame. The springs attached to the fabric allow one to jump on top.”
Trampoline jumping involves every muscle and invigorates every cell in your body. It’s a great way to increase bone strength and density. Trampoline exercises boost heart health and increase blood circulation and endurance. It’s also a fantastic way to reduce stress and boost mood.
“However, using the rebounder comes with its own set of risks. One must exercise caution. Any gravitational sport which involves high jumping can lead to severe issues in people suffering from sinus, cervical, osteoporosis, and migraine. Rebounding can be dangerous for patients suffering from scoliosis (sideways curvature of the spine),” says Puri.
While trampoline workouts do increase blood circulation, people with varicose veins should only opt for soft rebounding, since intense jumping can cause the veins to swell. Rebounding can also negatively impact your joints, particularly those with chronic joint problems like osteoarthritis. Pregnant women should avoid trampoline workouts altogether.
“It’s also pertinent to bear in mind that while trampoline jumping is a very good cardio and limited weight training exercise, it cannot replace other forms of exercise to meet your fitness goals. This form of exercise thus works best as an adjunct to other types of training,” recommends Puri.
So ladies, if you are planning to get on that trampoline, keep these tricks handy and save yourself from every possible injury.
